Mission Statement

WVBU plays a music format of modern and alternative rock, with a number of specialty shows of such genres as classical, jazz, and classic rock.

WVBU also operates a remote services division, providing music for on-campus entertainment. WVBU-FM is open to membership, after a mandatory training period, to all members of the Bucknell community, students and faculty alike.
